Wednesday – What do SpongeBob Square Pants and I have in Common?

We’re both working for Nickelodeon.

OK – so he has a major kids show and I will be a food writer for their parenting magazine, but still, I’m pretty excited.

So, for those of you who read this blog, let me tell you, a lot of it is due to you.

Here’s how it went down:

I have the world’s best agent, Rachelle Gardner. Every time I talk to her she assures me that I, in fact, am her only client and that she spends all of her waking hours working to make sure that I am completely happy. Well, I have evidence to the contrary.

Seems that she has another client, Erin MacPherson. I will excuse this little indiscretion on Rachelle’s part because Erin is super cool and real and funny. (And since you have amazing taste – I know this because you read this blog – you should absolutely check out her super-fun blog and new book here.)


Erin and I started chatting by e-mail and then she checked out my blog. That’s when she discovered me and my deep abiding love for all things tomato. After doing a little digging in the blog, she saw that roughly a quarter of all my post were food related.

Little did I know that for her day job, Erin is a writer/editor for Nickelodeon Family and Kids digital and edits their weekly food newsletter. Oh, and did I want to be a food writer for them.

Um, yeah.

So thanks to all of you and your love of all things yummy, I get to do a very cool job and work with a really cool woman.

Writing about food.

These are a few of my favorite things…
